    There is an interesting argument that ther process in su- pernovae may be an additional hint of neutrino oscillation. See Y.-Z. Qian and G. Fuller, Phys. Rev.D52, 656 (1995), and references therein.ADSGoogle Scholar

    This is a somewhat modified version of a neutrino-mass scenario proposed in D. Caldwell and R. Mohapatra, Phys. Rev.D48, 3259 (1993). In constructing this scenario, we have not assumed that neutrinos are a component of the dark matter in the universe. See also J. Peltoniemi, D. Tommasini, and J. Valle, Phys. Lett.B298, 383 (1993); V. Barger, S. Pakvasa, T. Weiler, and K. Whisnant, Phys. Rev.D58, 093016 (1998).ADSGoogle Scholar
